UK Regulatory (RNS & others)

9 November 2020 
                            One Media iP Group Plc 
                        ("One Media" or the "Company") 
                     Formation of TCAT Limited Subsidiary 
One Media iP Group Plc (AIM: OMIP), the digital music rights acquirer, 
publisher and distributor, announces that the Company has incorporated a new 
subsidiary, TCAT Limited, and appointed an experienced management team for its 
Technical Copyright Analysis Tool ("TCAT"). 
TCAT is a 'Software as a Service' (SaaS) platform which was developed in-house 
at One Media to detect copyright infringement within legitimate digital music 
stores. The creation of the subsidiary is part of TCAT's next phase of 
development to become a leading anti-piracy service for the music industry. 
TCAT currently provides a range of services to two major record labels and the 
world's largest media distributor on a retained basis, and its services are 
also used by organisations that represent the interests of the recording 
industry worldwide. TCAT Limited is based in Belfast, a leading technology hub 
with a large pool of highly qualified employees. TCAT is eligible for 
government (financial) support from (the regional development agency) Invest 
Northern Ireland. 
To enhance and scale TCAT for wider use across the industry and other markets, 
the Company has appointed an accomplished management team to operate the 
subsidiary, led by Dr Ed Vernon OBE, Strategic Adviser to BT Ireland, a 
Foundation Board Trustee of Queen's University, a Belfast Harbour Commissioner, 
and adviser to a number of technology businesses. Ed will be appointed 
Non-executive Chairman and holds 8% of shares in TCAT Limited under a JV deal. 
Ed will be joined on the Board of TCAT Limited by Robin Abeyesinhe as Chief 
Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer, who has over 30 years' public 
and private European finance experience. 
Michael Infante, Chief Executive Officer of One Media iP, and Alice Dyson 
Jones, Chief Operating Officer of One Media iP and Director of the British 
Phonographic Industry (BPI), will also join TCAT Limited's Board. 
Dr Benoit Hudza, who currently leads a team of engineers, data scientists and 
researchers to bring Artificial Intelligence to cloud operations, has been 
appointed as an adviser to the Board of TCAT Limited. 
The senior management team will consist of: 
·       Gareth Waller as Chief Technology Officer. Gareth has significant 
experience developing highly scalable customer engagement platforms for the 
retail sector. 
·       Kevin King is based in New York USA (the focus of TCAT's client list) 
and as Head of International Sales will lead the sales initiative for TCAT. His 
experience in all social music destinations and his previous work with major 
record labels, digital distributors and leading digital streaming sites is 
important to the marketing of the service. 
·       Dr Giuseppe Malavolta, Dr Mahroo Rockni and Mr Philip Miles, all highly 
experienced software developers who have been integral to TCAT's development to 
date, will also take up positions in TCAT Limited. 
The team, now consisting of a number of Big Data technology industry 
professionals, will be expanded in due course to provide the expertise required 
to grow the platform and develop new initiatives and tools in music 
anti-piracy, digital music fingerprinting and music data analysis. 
Michael Infante, Chief Executive Officer of One Media iP, commented: "After 
four years of developing and growing TCAT's capabilities in-house, the Board 
has identified the need for TCAT to operate as an independent entity within the 
Group in order to realise its full potential. 
"With a number of  major  record labels already subscribing to TCAT's services 
on a retained basis, we are confident that, with the provision of additional 
resource and technical expertise to expand the software's capabilities and 
usages, there is significant opportunity to gain new  traction  within the 
industry.  Our intention is for TCAT to become a mobile anti-piracy and audit 
tool for composers and artists as we build the portal to allow for future 
application access. 
"Under the direction of a highly experienced and motivated management team, the 
Board has every confidence in TCAT's growth trajectory as it enters the next 
phase of its development. We look forward to providing further updates in due
